Arjun Tendulkar, the son of India’s great Sachin Tendulkar, was recently in the headlines after it was claimed that he had relocated from Mumbai to Goa due to a lack of chances in the former’s state.
Tendulkar junior posted a series of Instagram stories on Sunday, confirming that he has already begun training at the Goa Cricket Association’s training facility.
Arjun has yet to make his Ranji debut and has only played two T20s for Mumbai in the 2020/21 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
Arjun could be seen batting inside the training facility in the stories as he prepares for the next domestic season.

was part of the Mumbai Indians in the 2022 Indian Premier League season but he did not get to play a game. He was repurchased by the franchise in the auction that preceded the tournament.
Even though MI had a disastrous season, finishing last in the table, Tendulkar did not appear, perplexing fans and past cricketers. Tendulkar’s dad sent a message to his son via YouTube after his constant absence from the MI XI this season “He should focus on his game and not think about the selection part. I don’t get involved in the selection process I leave that part to the management only,” Sachin had said.

“We have been looking out for left-hand bowling talent [and to] also add players to the middle order with multiple skills. In this context, we invited Arjun Tendulkar to join the Goa side.
We will be playing pre-season trial matches (white ball) and he will be playing in those games. The selectors will then take a call based on his performance”, Goa Cricket Association (GCA) president Suraj Lotlikar said.
